What two cars were the first 4-door pillarless hardtops? And the year?

...that was quick!..you are right. Cadillac came out with it the next year. It was widely adopted. I hope this style comes back. There is nothing like driving a pillarless hardtop with all the windows down on a nice day. It looks incredible and feels incredible.

I agree: I daily drove a '65 Bonneville 4-dr hardtop a number of years ago and loved it. I want hardtops back in both 2-dr & 4-drs. (Look down; yeah baby!!) Edited by balthazar

Other than manual trannies, RWD and pushrod V8s the Hardtop bodystyle is the most awsome feature/option in any car. It's one of the most significant contributions GM has given to the Automotive World.

What's cooler than this? Honestly!?

A friend of mine used to work for a chrysler dealer... which is funny to me mostly cause he's a big buick head.... anyway.. he'd drive around on cool days with the front and rear windows down on a sebring convert and call it a "faux hardtop" he's more of a dork then me....

Whe I used to work at Bill Deluca Chev-Pont-GMC-Buick I used to take out convertibles in really crazy weather. One time on the 23rd of Dec. wiht flurries in the air slapped a dealer plate on a 1997/8 Mustang GT convertible and dropped the roof. Wiht my thick winter coat on I puled up to the drivethrough on Dounkin Donuts and acted as if I was the most normal guy on the planet. It was like 25 degres outside and my fingers were so stiff I could hardly grip the money i handed to the girl but the look on her face was worth it! Abot a month later I took out a Wrangler on my lunch break and dropped the top and went off roading on a power-line trail in the snow! I'm surprised they didnt; have me put in a stray-jacket with all the carp I pulled there. I did an crazy burnout in 1st and 2nd gear in that very same Wrangler (4.0, stick, sport) and did not realise my manager (Gregg) was a few cars behind me at that intersection. Boy did he ream me out! It was worht it though! :P

Yep, if they want to make 4-door cars really look like coupes, all they have to do is make them pillarless...it transforms a 4-door into something special. Isn't the new Mercedes-Benz CLK coupe a true hardtop(pillarless)?

I mean, people, they even made 4-door hardtop wagons for pete's sake, how sharp is that?....

1. Winning Lottery ticket for $1million 2. LS7 crate engine = $11,000 3. 1958 Oldsmobile wagon ($1200 pulled out of someone's back yard) 4. 6-speed manual trans. = $2500 5. Blowing the doors off a 2006 Mustang GT in a '58 Olds wagon = Priceless!
